This is what I looked like this morning before my shower:
Things I have done instead of updating my blog:
-Working. Can you believe they actually want a return on my salary?
-Trying a new lunch spot. I hate to eat food I haven't eaten before. I know that's weird and silly, but I'm a picky eater (hello, this is where Batman gets it). I put on my big girl panties and went to Roti for lunch yesterday. It was good and I'll probably go again. It helped that I read the menu online and planned exactly what I would get so I didn't freeze when I got there. I would be a much better networker if I could eat like a normal person, but I can't and I dread meeting people for lunch unless they are close friends and it's my home turf (i.e. Five Guys).
-Meeting with Batman's teacher to discuss his food fight, trip to the principal's office, and other terrible behavior.
-Prepping for Halloween. Our lights and decorations are out. The lawn has been planted with tombstones. It's spider season in Virginia, and a HUGE wolf spider has taken up residence near our porch light. Our pumpkins have been attacked by fruit flies. We have our spook on.
-Gathering costume materials. Batman is going to be a knight this year. Robin is going to be Batman. I am going to be a porter, a la Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I have my coconuts and burlap.
If I'm not back, have a Happy Halloween! In the words of the recently fired TSA agent, "Get Your Freak On!"
